Fort Lytton in 1938 3D Model
Fort Lytton National Park is situated near the mouth of the Brisbane River on the eastern coast of Australia. Originally constructed between 1880 and 1882, the park preserves the remains of the oldest colonial fortress in Queensland. The fort controlled river access to the capital city Brisbane, which was a further 15km upstream. It represents the colony’s largest response to the need to provide for its own defence following the withdrawal of the British Army in 1869.
This 3D model is a complete reconstruction of the state of the Fort in 1938, before the construction of the gunpit 7 during WWII, done by UQ’s Jonus Darr as part of an ongoing project to digitise South East Queensland’s cultural heritage thanks to a partnership between CSIRO, the University of Queensland, the Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
